In the opening exchanges of the second half, Munster found themselves on the wrong side of the referee’s whistle once more at the scrum, and Myler lined up another shot at goal a few metres outside the opposition’s 10m line. The kick was true and Ospreys stretched their lead to 12-3 after five minutes.
Munster wrestled back the momentum after ten minutes, with a penalty going in their favour and outside half Crowley kicking them into an attacking position inside Ospreys’ 22. Munster’s pack, unable to outmuscle the Ospreys’ on their own, call in the cavalry and all but three of the Munster team add their weight to the maul to get over the line. Scrumhalf Craig Casey was the man to get over the line, and Crowley curled the ball inside the posts to bring the game to within 2 points, 12-10.
Ospreys looked for all the world like they were going to power over from short range as the forwards hurled themselves against Munster’s defence, the tackles kept coming but eventually they yielded a penalty in front of the posts. Myler took responsibilities and added another three to his tally to take the Ospreys 5 points clear with fifteen minutes left to play.
With ten minutes left on the clock, the Ospreys were awarded another penalty and once more Myler showed great composure to slot the attempt and take his side eight points clear. With barely two minutes left on the clock, Munster were awarded a penalty just inside their own half and young Ben Healy steppe dup to take the kick. It would’ve been a monstrous effort, and despite having the legs, the ball drifted wide, guaranteeing the Ospreys a victory as the clock ticked into the final seconds of the game.
However, with the clock having struck 80, and the game secured by the ospreys, Healy pointed at the posts for another shot at goal, almost 60 metres out, but right in front of the posts. However, this final effort also went awry and Munster would leave the Swansea.com Stadium empty handed, and with their winning streak broken.
